Former Players Critical Of Playcalling On Social Media
The metaphorical tire-fire all of you have been forced to endure has probably made you feel a litany of emotions — most of which include anger, disgust, confusion, and rage. Penn State’s inept showing in a game in which it was favored shouldn’t have made you feel any different, but at least you’re not alone!
A number of notable Penn State alumni — including Allen Robinson, Anthony Adams, and Donovan Smith — took to social media to voice their displeasure about the team’s lackluster performance against Temple, with the majority of the criticism centering around the team’s egregious play calling.

The players’ evident anger is completely warranted. Christian Hackenberg was fed to the dogs after his offensive line was unable to give him any cushion whatsoever, Kyle Carter and DaeSean Hamilton combined for one reception, and John Donovan’s deplorable selection of plays kept Penn State’s offense from making any noticeable impact.
Just like last season, a number of questions surround the team’s capability to perform on the offensive side of the ball. What’s worse, the season has only just begun. If the team can’t exorcise its demons by the time conference play rolls around, we’re all in for a long, unbearable season.
At least it’s not just the fans raising the questions this time.
